Make sure you book one or more animal encounters . We did snakes, koalas and dingoes. Worth the price!

The little take away can improve. Other than that it was amazing, the animals are all opened and free it was amazing to see them running free and happy.

Yes animals, like people, are less active in hot weather. Actually we would like to close on extreme heat days like the day you came, however we recognise that some people, especially international visitors have made arrangements to visit they cannot change.

So sorry, something must have gone wrong! The thing to do would have been to advise staff who would have made sure the items were replaced or you were refunded. Please feel free to contact us so we can do something for you.
